Remembering Kathy Acox

April 12th, 2017

Last month, The Arc of Essex County celebrated the life of long-time employee and beloved friend to many consumers, Kathy Acox.  Kathy joined The Arc of Essex County as a consumer support specialist in 1995.  During her tenure with The Arc, Kathy’s insight, humor, knowledge, and empathy changed countless lives for the better.

Always ready to offer an innovative solution to a problem, Kathy earned the respect of consumers and staff alike with her hands on approach to challenges. Her love for those in our services was evident in everything she did from teaching consumers valuable life skills to simply enjoying their company with delight and laughter. 

The Arc of Essex County offers its condolences to her family and friends during this difficult time.
